I’m so indecisive i don’t know if I want to wear a veil with my dress or not! I sort of feel like they are almost outdated? And they are super expensive! I was thinking of just wearing a glitzy braid headband.
did you or are you going to wear a veil?

I will be wearing a veil, with a blusher (the part that goes over the front of your face), hopefully my mum’s veil that she wore when she married my dad 🙂
ETA: They aren’t outdated at all! Traditional, yes, but never outdated!

I will be. I’m not sure why it would be ‘outdated’, I would think that the majority of modern brides still wear them. To me, it’s what makes me feel like a bride…and I want that moment when my dad lifts up the blusher when he gives me away.

@MissSweetiepie: I didn’t wear one because I wanted to save money and just don’t think a veil is very ‘me’. I don’t think they are outdated and can look fantastic on some people but it’s a matter of taste. Go with your gut!

I wore one because it really completed the look to me and it was how I really felt like a bride. But looking back, I kind of wish I would have gone with something else. Like a flower crown maybe.

I wore a birdcage veil and it wasn’t expensive at all. $80 off etsy.

Veils are not outdated. I will be wearing a cathedral veil (on sale for $40 from David’s bridal) and a blusher ($20 from DB). I think it hels complete the look I am going for and like PPs it gives me that bridal feeling. I would go without the blusher but FI actually requested it, for him its traditional.

I wore a veil, a simple chapel lenght drop veil. It cost me $4. My veil ended up being one of my favorite things I wore. $4 in tulle from the fabric store, rounded the corners and attached it to my hair with beautiful hair pins.

@MissSweetiepie: Veils are only expensive if you’re looking in bridal shops. My mother will be making mine, 2-tier with sequins. It will more than likely cost less than $50 total. You don’t have to make it for them to be cheap either. Check out various places.

I wore a veil and a flower clip that a girlfriend of mine made…I loved it. I ended up taking the veil off quite early into the reception which for some reason I now regret haha!

@HonoraryNerd: I actually found a veil with rhinestones on it that would match my dress perfectly for $12 on ebay from china but that is so awesome your mom is making you yours!

@MissSweetiepie: I wore a veil. A very loooong veil. It was amazing, I felt amazing and I would wear it to the grocery store if I could. 🙂

I am actually really glad I went with a veil, even though I didn’t want to at first! I chose to wear my hair down and wavy and looking at my pictures I look really “bridal” during the ceremony and a LOT more casual at the reception (after I took it off) which is what I was going for.

I bought a veil from eBay for $5 and it was perfect, but my dress was so late and needed so many alterations that during my appointments I forgot to ever try it on. Come time to walk down the aisle, I totally forgot about it. 🙁 oh well!!!
